Social tennis is played in a friendly atmosphere with a variety of standards – even a bit of friendly serious tennis!
Generally we have drinks and nibbles afterwards (BYO). Forrest is one of the few clubs that have well attended social events, with between 20 and 30 people often showing up in the warmer months; so you are always guaranteed a game and a variety of opponents. Just turn up at the times specified.
We play double sets of 8 games (2 serves per player) as a match then look to switch playing partners and opponents.
Social tennis is suitable for players who are able to serve and maintain a rally. If you are not sure that you are suitable, just come down and give it a try to check your standard. If you are a beginner, it is always best to start with a group coaching class, discuss with our club coach.
